Detailed Description

GAMBIT signal handling functions.

I have tried to make these standards conformant, however I suspect that they are not, and the emergency signal handlers definitely are not. Nevertheless, they seem to work well, and the emergency shutdown handlers are intended for emergencies only (when a clean shutdown is not possible), so non-conformance is the least of our problems in that situation. The "soft" shutdown handler should be at least very close to conformant I think, though there are some more steps that could be taken to improve this if it turns out to be an issue.
